A typical day at work consist of 0645 arrival and report from the night shift. Report gives us any pertinent information about the mental, physical, medical status of each patient. Communciation is key in a psych hospital. The management is going through a few changes, but for the better. My co-workers are very supportive and have become my second family. The hardest part of my job is learning to remain in control, in the mist of the possible chaos, especially if you are mentally exhausted. The most enjoyable part if caring for my patients, and to know that i have done something to help them grow or play a part in the healing process.
